Orange County Platoon

Event overview

Join the OC Platoon for a FUN day of hard work. We are partnering with OC Parks and Laguna Canyon Foundation to do some trail work. See the trails in a whole new way. No experience necessary. Whatever your skill level is, there is a job to do: clearing drains to get the water off of the trail, pruning vegetation back to keep users on the trail, moving dirt to rebuild eroded tread, and restoring impacted areas are just some of the tasks we will accomplish. We will be using tools such as loppers, picks, shovels, and McLeods to improve trails, protect the fragile habitat, and increase the sustainability. Expect to hike up to 4 miles while carrying tools. Gloves and tools provided. Please note: For safety reasons, we limit the number of participants for this event. If after you reserve your spot, you realize you cannot attend, please cancel your reservation with so that the reservation will be available for another volunteer. Please note the following safety precautions and protocols: Pre-registration is required. Participants must be at least 16 years old and those younger than 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. A waiver, provided on arrival, must be signed by each participant at the start of the program. Participants must bring plenty of water, closed-toed hiking shoes, and sun protection. Location: Laguna Coast Wilderness Park, Lizard Trail, Bommer Ridge Trail West Entrance Please note: Wet or muddy trail conditions may lead to cancellation of this event.
